MOORESVILLE, NC - Weinig AG CEO Walter Fahrenschon announced that Jason Howell has been appointed president of the company's North American subsidiary.

This announcement, in the presence of Weinig agents from across the continent, marked the completion of the restructuring process for the North American operation and "a pivotal moment in the long-term strategies for Weinig," the company said.

Howell joined Weinig 12 years ago and has served as VP of finance and administration.

This announcement also signals the return of Peter Lohmeyer, who held the position of VP of sales and marketing of the North American subsidiary during the restructuring process, to his full responsibilities as marketing division head of Weinig AG at the corporate headquarters in Tauberbischofsheim, Germany.
